A significant amount of research has been conducted on the incineration of contaminated materials. Although historically the primary focus has been on the destruction of organics, increased emphasis is being placed in the fate of metals. Unlike the organic portion, the metal fraction may change form but is not destroyed. Metals can remain with the ash when discharged from the primary combustion chamber. They can also volatilize or oxidize to form fumes or fine particulates and pass through the incineration system. Metal vapors, fumes, or particles can be collected by the APCDs, exit out the stack, or be deposited along the walls of the combustion chamber and remain in the incineration system. Potential pathways for metals are illustrated. This distribution of metals into the various incinerator system components is called 'partitioning.' A number of factors affect how various metals will partition, or behave, during incineration.
